Large parts of our economy are characterised by insecurity. Our Insecure Work strand aims to deliver new evidence and ideas to help organisations, policymakers and workers.
The Work Foundation is a leading think tank for improving working lives in the UK. We believe everyone should have access to secure, rewarding and high-quality work and deliver rigorous applied research to tackle structural inequalities in the labour market and improve working lives across the UK.
🏆Our #researchoftheweek for this week goes to @CentreforCities for their report on the drivers of economic inactivity. It finds that in some UK cities, workers are involuntarily leaving the labour market due to a lack of secure, well-paid jobs. (1/7) https://t.co/oF8Vf5gufs https://t.co/29VEHlhCgf
New blog: with the cost of living crisis continuing to bite, employers have needed to examine their approach to financial wellbeing in the workplace. This blog takes stock of key considerations that employers will be grappling with. https://t.co/xNZHNOt2jb
RT @LancasterUni: Great to see @WorkFoundation research cited in an interesting but sobering read in the @WEF: "Women are the ‘shock absorbers of poverty'’" and are "almost twice as likely" to be in insecure work than men 👇 https://t.co/i6OkNXyLZS
